“Beautiful Things”

Every January, the Urban Mission begins the new year with a new
theme. We are excited to announce our theme for 2021 – “Beautiful
Things.”


As Isaiah 61 reminds us, it is God’s desire to “bestow a crown of
beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy, instead of mourning, and a
garment of praise, instead of a spirit of despair.”


In 2021, it is our mission to highlight the beauty of each person who
walks through our doors, and be co-creators with God to create
beauty at the Urban Mission and within our community.


We invite you join us in this effort and we continue to pray for you and your family and friends as we begin a new year together – a new year, which we pray, is full of beautiful things!

Here are the “beautiful things”
we’re looking forward to this year:
• Opening of our Urban Thrift store in our new plaza location (March 2021)
• Expanding services at our men, women and children’s shelters
• Preparing our 7th Street greenspace
• Expansion of our Urban Mission Works program
• Partnerships with the Ohio Valley Health Center to care for diabetes patients and shelter guests
• A month full of Minority Health events
• Renovation at the 7th Street Plaza
• Connecting with YOU through our monthly newsletter, online and Lord willing, in person!
